While jet charter services have been around for decades, there are people who don’t know this type of travel option exists. Others think it’s only for business use. In fact, this approach to travel is available for just about any purpose. Do you have some questions like are private jets safer? Here are some examples of commonly asked questions and answers that will help you determine if this is the right travel option for you.
How Likely Is It That I Can Leave On the Date and Time I Want?
Jet charter services are known for doing everything possible to accommodate a client request. That includes booking departure and return flights for the dates and times that the client requests. In the majority of cases, the ability to get the specific dates and times you want is there. That means you can call to arrange for an Airbus for rent and know it will be waiting when you arrive at the airport.
Depending on the number in your party, there may be seats available on a flight going your way the same day but at a different time. The charter service will likely mention this just in case you are open to taking that flight that’s already reserved and sharing the cost with the other party. If not, your reservation will reflect the dates and times you originally requested.
Are Chartered Flights Safer Than Commercial Flights?
Are private jets safer? Thanks to the fact that charter services are required by law to comply with the same safety regulations that apply to any type of aircraft, you can bet every flight is at least as safe as any commercial aircraft. What you may not know is that many charter services choose to take more precautions than their commercial counterparts. Those additional safety precautions would be one reason to say that charter services may be safer than standard commercial flights.
How Many People Can Be in My Party?
There are aircrafts of varying sizes available from most charter services. If the travel distance is relatively short and it’s just you and one other person, chartering a helicopter makes sense. There are smaller craft that are ideal for parties of four to eight people. You can also reserve a charter jet that will accommodate groups of ten or more.
When you call the make the reservation, discuss the number of people going and ask for recommendations. The charter service personnel will suggest crafts based on the size of your party and ensure you have enough space to be comfortable.
Do I Have to Wait at a Gate?
One of the nice things about a jet charter is that you get to bypass many of the steps associated with a commercial flight. You go directly to the gate where your Airbus for rent is waiting. There’s no need to check, wait in line, check your luggage, and then wait at a gate until the commercial airline arrives. Get out of your cab, hand over the luggage, and board the plane. Settle into your seat and the jet will take off shortly.
Can I Bring My Pet Along?
Charter services are known for offering clients a wide range of amenities. One of them happens to be the ability to bring your pet along. If you and your party are the only ones on the flight, it may not be necessary to keep the pet in a crate the entire time. Remember that you will have to contain the pet when it’s time to land.
What If I Need to Make Changes to My Departure or Return Times?
If something comes up and you need to leave an hour or so later, call the service immediately. In most cases, it won’t take long to adjust the departure time and ensure everything is still ready when you get to the airport. The service will clear everything with the airport and even ensure the team at the destination know your Airbus for rent is arriving a little later than originally planned.
Do you have more questions about jet charters? Why are private jets safer? What entertainment options are available? Is there a place to sleep or space for me to freshen up and change before the jet lands? The team at the service has the answers. Give them a call and then book your first reservation. You won’t be sorry.
